A Sound Impression Review – Brides Say It Best!

A Sound Impression Review

[My experience was] Amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. Followed my guidelines very well. Both the love story video and DJ made the whole reception everything I could’ve asked for. I highly recommend Kurtis as your DJ. He made the night so much fun and made sure to make announcements as the night went on for each important event taking place. I was very pleased and it was excellent!

A Sound Impression Review

We first met Cody + Angie when they booked us for a Love Story video, to share their story with their guests. They have been dating since college and have such a cute story together. Cody played college baseball and Angie now owns her own nutritional/fitness company, Eleat Nutrition. You can see their slideshow video in another post!

Cody + Angie had a stunning winter wedding – And I truly mean that! Angie’s sister is a talented wedding planner that we love working with. Shelly owns Event Design, based in Lincoln but works all over Nebraska. We found out she was handling the small details and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work with such a professional.

She brought in an amazing team of vendors, starting with one of our favorites: Matt Elwood with Elwood Photography to do the photography. He truly captured the essence of their day, down the snowy photo to show the wintriness of the day.

The reception was at the beautiful Cornhusker Hotel in downtown Lincoln. We loved the silver sparkles, the uplighting, the contrasting white. Their tiered square cake was simple yet stunning. Our DJ from A Sound Impression rocked the dance floor all night long – Everything about the day was gorgeous!

Wedding Slideshow Video

Wedding Slideshow Video

We LOVE creating a wedding slideshow video for our clients, as a perfect way to showcase the story of your lives merging into one.

A wedding slideshow video can be done in many different ways. Our couples provide us with the images they want to appear, along with any song selections they want included to play behind their photos. Video clips, say of the proposal, dress shopping, and so on may also be included in between the photos, to create something a little more unique. Our couples get the chance to proof their video to make sure every photo looks good and is in the order they want it to appear. The file is then either delivered digitally or on a DVD prior to the wedding day. If A Sound Impression is also providing the DJ services for the reception, our DJs will bring a back of copy of the wedding slideshow video and will be in charge of setting it up and playing it at the appropriate time.

In order to show the wedding slideshow video at the reception, it takes either a set up TV or a projector/screen combo. We have those available to rent if the venue you’ve chosen for your reception doesn’t include one or have it’s own. The other thing to consider is how your guests will hear the sound to your video. Often times, the DJ or band you’ve hired will let you plug into their system to project the sound over the speakers, or the reception venue may have a house speaker system as well.

If you choose the TV route, some couples will place the TV at the entrance of the hall, on continuous rotation so the guests can watch it at their convenience throughout the night. This works better if your hall is uniquely shaped or set up, in a way that is difficult for all guests to watch. This way also allows the reception events to continue without having to block out time for the slideshow to play.

Overall, there are many different ways to piece together a wedding slideshow video. Our services are available at any point during your planning process, and we are happy to assist in any way we can!

I don’t even know where to begin with this stunning day. Katie + Joaquin are one of those genuinely amazing couples, the kind that light up the room when they are together. It is obvious to everyone around them how happy they make each other, in turn sharing that happiness with others. There is nothing better than to be able to capture that love between two people and give them a way to share that with their family and friends for years to come.

The day began at Katie’s parents home, where we met the bridesmaids after the salon to get Katie in her dress. They opted not to see each other before the wedding, a tradition that is becoming more rare as years go by. It was a beautiful church in Omaha, with a full Catholic mass wedding. Post ceremony, a bagpiper was greeting guests outside the church while Katie + Joaquin began family photos — Such a unique touch!

A trolly took the wedding party around Omaha, ending up at the Omaha Country Club, where the reception was awaiting them. Before entering, we took photos on the beautiful golf course with their amazingly talented photographer, Sarah Elizabeth Studios (all photos courtesy of her talents!) The sun was in the perfect spot and the trees along the fairway gave the perfect backdrop for the days shoot.

Once inside, the couple cut their tiered cake, mingled with their guests, and listened to some moving toasts by the maid of honor and best man. The decor was flawless, the night flowed smoothly, and the guests, who came from all over (including out the country!) had an amazing time. We were so thrilled to be a part of it and provide them with our Omaha Wedding Videography services!

Ryan + Hali | Embassy Suites Lincoln Wedding

Another gorgeous Embassy Suites Lincoln Wedding! Ryan + Hali’s day was nothing short of stunning. They were married at St Joseph’s Catholic Church in a gorgeous full mass ceremony. The perfect weather gave them a chance to capture beautiful outdoor photographs. We absolutely love the mix of outdoor greenery photos an brick wall city scape backdrops by Jessica Blex.

We simply love when brides opt for a different look post ceremony, and Hali decided on two hairstyles – down for the ceremony and pinned up for the party. Once arriving at Embassy Suites, guests were greeted by a transformed room with intimate pink uplighting, chiavari chairs, and an elaborate floral design. Next to her lit wedding cake was a selection of cake balls, one of the hottest trends from 2014 weddings.

Ryan and Hali were introduced into the hall, cut their cake, and proceeded to their first dance. One of our DJs kept the dance floor rocking and the night on schedule – it was a party and the guests had a fabulous time!
